Some recipes include instructions for making quick-versions of “preserved” lemons, typically involving the boiling of the lemons, or dry-salt curing.

—The Original Slow Food
My soon-to-be 19-year-old son was about to get ready for bed, when he asked if he could have some dessert. I said “Yes”, and a few minutes later, he came out with a big bowl of kimchi, mixed veggies and kraut. I was so thrilled to see him wanting to eat something good instead of the icecream that “Dad” was eating! Maybe I didn’t start too late making healthy fermented foods for him!!!
